The team of well known Ethereum wallet released new statement, reegarding the frozen funds. It is worth noting that frozen funds are estimated for $164M.

Parity is working on several proposals to improve the Ethereum platform (EIP), which could unlock the funds. But so far no time can be called for when such a proposal for improvement can be implemented.

We deeply regret the situation and we are working hard on several Ethereum improvement proposals(EIPs), both contributing to previously existing ones and suggesting new ones that have the potential to unblock funds. These improvement proposals will also address general cases of blocked funds.
There is no timeline for when such an improvement proposal could be implemented; we will follow the will of the community and go through the regular EIP process like any other protocol improvement. Parity Technologies will handle much of the development work around these proposals and work constructively with the Ethereum Foundation team and the community towards further protocol layer development. We are committed to the continued development of Ethereum.

As a result of the activation of the vulnerability on November 6, funds were blocked on 587 wallets for a total of 513774.16 ETH.

Among the victims there were 16 major ICO: Polkadot, ICONOMI, Musiconomi, Moeda, Centrality and others.

Parity Ethereum Client v2.0 to be Released

Developers have created Parity Ethereum exclusively for mining pools, exchanges and other infrastructure nodes

Parity Technologies has introduced a new version of the full node software for the Ethereum network called Parity Ethereum v2.0.0.

This major release comes with some notable changes. First and most importantly, Parity Ethereum is built to serve as expert software for production use and shouldn’t be considered end-user software or an “Ethereum Wallet.” It is meant for mission-critical use in mining pools, exchanges, or any other type of infrastructure or service provider.

The Parity Ethereum client is able to interact with various consensus mechanisms, provides the choice between the Ethereum virtual machine (EVM) and the WebAssembly virtual machine (WasmVM), and it supports private transactions and the creation of special lists of nodes to restrict access to certain contracts.

Moreover, users should not perceive the new version of the software as a product for the end-user or Ethereum-purse, as the developers have created Parity Ethereum exclusively for mining pools, exchanges and other infrastructure nodes. This version is specialized.

The client also lacks a graphical user interface, known as the Parity wallet.
